G is for GIVEAWAY!

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for another A2Z4UandMe post, and I'm up to the letter G. What better word than...


You may know the name Margaret Brownley. Margaret has penned it all: romance, mystery, suspense, thrills. There's nothing wrong with this—except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction."
So that’s what Margaret did. She’s now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit!
The first book in her Brides of Last Chance Ranch series “Dawn Comes Early” is hot off the presses!  This book will be followed by Waiting for Morning July 2013.

Margaret has graciously offered to GIVE AWAY a copy of her latest novel, DAWN COMES EARLY. Be one of the first to read this wonderful book.

Here's a blurb:

Dawn Comes Early
Brides of Last Chance Ranch

Heiress Wanted
Looking for hard-working, professional woman
of good character and pleasant disposition
willing to learn the ranching business in Arizona Territory.
Must be single and prepared to remain so now and forever more.

Her latest dime novel banned, twenty-nine-year old KATE TENNEY answers an advertisement for heiress to an Arizona cattle ranch. It seems like the perfect solution for a disgraced novelist with no intention of getting married—ever. 

Trouble begins the moment she steps foot in Arizona Territory. The west is nothing like she wrote about in her books. Not only does she have to deal with a hard-nosed ranch owner, and nefarious outlaw, but a traitorous heart.  Kate does not trust men and has no intention of falling for LUKE ADAM’S charm.  She’s determined to learn the ranching business and prove to the doubting ranch owner that she’s up to the task—if it kills her.  If only she could stay away from a certain handsome blacksmith and his two matchmaking aunts.

Simply leave a comment on this blog post to be automatically entered to win a copy of Margaret's book. Winner will be selected and announced next Friday, March 23.
